Extrabiblical supposition? Jesus speaks of ‘my wife’

This Sept. 5, 2012 file photo released by Harvard University shows a fragment of papyrus that divinity professor Karen L. King said is the only existing ancient text that quotes Jesus explicitly referring to having a wife. An article published in the Harvard Theological Review on Thursday, April 10, 2014, said new scientific tests suggest the fragment is more likely an ancient document than a forgery. King, an expert in the history of Christianity, said the papyrus probably dates to eighth-century Egypt based on carbon dating tests and tests on the ink’s chemical composition. AP FILE PHOTO

By

In the movie “Spider-Man,” Peter Parker could have prevented the death of his Uncle Ben if only he did the right thing, i.e., stopping the robber and helping the robber’s victim. But out of anger at the victim who earlier embarrassed him, Parker did not lift a finger, which could have prevented the robbery and the subsequent death of Uncle Ben.

We have no belen or images of the Holy Family to mark Christmas in our household. Nor will our Noche Buena table feature a succulent lechon or glazed ham. As far as our Christian-Muslim family is concerned, these are mere trimmings to the real meaning of the season.

It needs courage to be Catholic


By
